The Care Group's bid to NHS England for funding and training for 10 Clinical Pharmacists has been successful.
We applied for support for 2 senior pharmacists and 8 junior pharmacists to work with networks and practices. We are waiting for formal confirmation of next steps.
The Care Group Board has today agreed to support practices who have taken on trainee practice nurses through our Open Doors scheme.
Health Education England (HEE) pays for a proportion of the trainee's salary but the funding will not arrive until April 2017. Six students have already been appointed under the scheme and their practices are currently paying their full salary. In order to protect the practice cashflows, the Board has decided to fund the salary reimbursements, which can be recouped when the funding from the HEE arrives.
Any of the practices hosting one of the six students can seek this support by contacting Open Doors lead, Vicky Souster at: Vicky.firstname.lastname@example.org
